The BSc (Hons) Psychology degree is a three year full-time programme which can also be studied part-time. This course has been designed to promote a thorough understanding of Psychology, its theories, applications and the wide variety of research approaches to the study of human thought, action and behaviour; the course has a strong focus on the development of academic and key transferable skills. Considerable emphasis is also placed on employability and career planning. There is also a four year sandwich option which offers a valuable opportunity for students to extend their work-based learning experience to a full year placement between Levels 2 and 3. This could be particularly advantageous to students who are seriously considering a career as a Chartered Psychologist. The programme is accredited by the British Psychological Society and the degree confers the Graduate Basis for Chartership with the Society.
